ABSTRACT

Agricultural waste has been of major source of environmental pollution and its utilization

and conversion to renewable energy will discourage possible consequences associated

with its discharge in the environment. This study was targeted at the conversion of waste

to fish feed. Samples were collected in quantities from dumpsites abattoirs, market places

using 20kg polypropylene bags and transported to the production sites. Plantain peels

meal, banana peel meal, cassava peel meals were processed by sun drying and roasting.

Quantities of the prepared materials taken with the aid of a motorized machine are grinded to form a marsh. Nutrients in the marsh were determined by standard analytical method. The moisture content of the commercial poultry feed (top and Amo-Byn) is higher in percentage when compared to that of waste diet. The nutritional content of waste diet is higher compared to other commercial poultry feeds. The weight gain of the birds served with waste diet was higher than that of those served with commercial diet. Waste conversion to feed is a great effort in both pollution control and wealth generation.

Keywords: Pollution, poultry droppings, livestock feed, economic growth, sustainability
